Take a seat, Legolas and Hawkeye, the world is about to enter a “new level of archery,” and Lars Andersen is here to be your sharp-shooting guide.

Andersen is a master of shooting arrows with the same hand he holds them in, an impressive strategy that dates back 5,000 years.

“But where’s the quiver?” your inner Robin Hood might ask. Forget quivers! They are just overrated baskets that tangle you up in trees and burden you with a slower reaction time. They are outdated props that live on due to their proliferation in movies like Lord of the Rings.

By perfecting the arrow-in-hand approach, Andersen is able to shoot while on the move, jumping, close up, far away and hanging upside-down. These are just a few highlights from his assemblage of lethal tricks that also includes splitting his arrow with a knife blade and catching enemy arrows with his bare hands.

Don’t be a chump! Ditch the quiver and let Andersen shepherd you to a land of ancient archery tricks and wicked awesome wall jumps in the video above.
